Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Kryptonite rekeying; insight please?

I thought I would post/ ask this here as the vast majority of bikeforums members reside here and this subforum gets the most traffic. And considering nearly everyone here has had experience with some sort of kryptonite lock.

~Has anyone ever had/ knows anyone who has had their kryptonite lock rekeyed by kryptonite themselves via the send it back with $20 method? If so can you shed a little bit of light on the process? More importantly the turn around time?

You guys at this point must think I'm careless. But the reason I'm asking this is that a campus officer, I work at a university, who I happen to know very well, gave me a kryptonite evolution u lock that he came across in the unclaimed property lock up while he was tiding it up a bit; abandoned/ forgotten bikes go here. Don't know how the lock ended up here intact nonetheless. And I just thought this lock is a bit too nice to give doorstop duty.

In my case I didn't have my lock rekeyed, instead I had one of the older locks with the circular keys that could possibly be opened via a bic pen (tried it for about an hour, couldn't do it.) Anyway, the process was just to contact them prior, they'll give you an address, you mail it in to them and I got a new lock back in about a week. Couldn't of been simpler. I'm not sure how their locks w/o keys program works but if it's the same it's really quick and simple.
